Fanciful Fabric…Soul Blossoms by Amy Butler

So if you follow us on Facebook. You may have noticed in the past we shared some of our favorite fabrics from Amy Butler, particularly from her “Love” Collection. Well just in time for Valentines day we are going to share some more of her gorgeous prints that are so bold, bright and happy! They make you feel just like being in love. You know that feeling of PASSION, BLISS and JOY! Well these are in fact the names of Amy’s color stories from her new collection called “Soul Blossoms“. This collection was inspired by her recent trip to India. Oh and how I love them. It is so Boho Chic. Watch out for these jewels, they may just end up on some of our pieces at our boutique, Quondam this Spring. Maybe a sweet chair, ottoman, apron, or handbag…Hmmm the wheels are turning! Stay tuned or better yet let us know what you would like to see!

Actually this post was inspired by one of our new followers on Twitter, LuxeInteriorDesign. I stopped by to visit her blog and saw this delicious post and wanted to share some of it. Stop by luxeinteriordesign’s blog and follow her. She has some great post’s. But in the mean time here are some teaser pics from her blog!

 

Kravet Luncheon

Today I met my friends Teresa and Charlotte at the IDC (International Design Center).We attended the Kravet “How to Get Published” seminar presented by Carolyn Sollis, former Style Director of House & Garden magazine, Executive Editor of House Beautiful. It was such a great presentation. Carolyn provided so many tips for Designers from proper marketing ideas to providing a cohesive image as a successful Designer. She explained the importance of “Brand Identity”. Studio 6XI definitely seconds that motion! She also provided tips for submitting projects to different design publications. After the presentation Kravet provided a delicious lunch in their fabulous showroom. It consisted of a yummy shrimp scampi, Mediterranean chicken, rice pilaf, bruschetta topped with cheese and diced tomatoes, fresh vegetable platter and fruit kabobs. Finished off with a fresh mimosa. Mmm it was delish! We had a chance to look at the gorgeous fabrics in the showroom and mingle with other local designers. Kravet even provided us with these great bags filled with goodies. Kravet knows marketing! It was a such a lovely afternoon.
